The Commission is submitting a non-substantive change request to allow for electronic filing of certain applications and notices using the Commission's Electronic Comment Filing System (ECFS). Under section 10 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, telecommunications carriers (comprising of fixed local service providers, wireless telephony providers and interexchange carriers) may petition the Commission to forbear from applying to a telecommunications carrier any statutory provision or Commission regulation. When a carrier petitions the Commission for forbearance, section 10 requires the Commission to make three determinations with regard to the need for the challenged provision or regulation. If the Commission fails to act within one year (extended by three months, if necessary) the petition is "deemed granted" by operation of law. These determinations require complex, fact-intensive analysis, e.g., "whether forbearance from enforcing the provision or regulation will promote competitive market conditions."

The Commission is reporting a slight adjustment increase in burden which is due to more accurate estimates of the number of annual responses, which led to the addition of one respondent. Therefore, the total annual burden increased by 640 hours.
